The work coming out of their London office is particularly strong. If NY is moving in that direction too, it’s a very good sign. They’ve been on AdWeek lately, I’d do a quick browse. But I can’t speak for the culture obviously. If it were me, I’d take an offer there!

Recommendations for back to work after baby? I’m almost halfway through leave and starting to get a little anxious

Parents of newborns, how are you approaching having visitors during Covid? I’m pregnant and trying to figure out what are reasonable expectations of my family and friends around visitation/holding the baby (anything from washing hands when they come over to quarantining before visiting and holding the baby). I want to make sure we’re protecting ourselves/the baby and our older family members who are at a higher risk. Our families live nearby so I anticipate they may want to visit frequently

I really want to try for baby no. 2 soon but now if I would start it would put me in my busiest month of January when the baby would be due.

I really want to start trying because I want my kids closer in age. My daughter turns 2 in July so I would like to start soon so they are 2.5-3 years apart. I don’t know

Big picture question: How did you settle on a FIRE number? Originally I did the simple "estimated annual living expenses divided by 4% rule", but am now second guessing that for many reasons. For example, if I want to live on 70,000 per year, I'll need 1.75MM... but what if 70,000 in 20 years won't be a ton of money? Also, what about saving up for kid's college funds? How to account for the possibility of tax law changes? So many questions!
